Reinforcements at Sporting “only if someone leaves”, argues Saleiro

Carlos Saleiro, a former Sporting striker and now a players’ agent, believes that the stability of the Leo squad is evident and there is, for now, no need for reinforcements in Alvalade.

“Sporting has been doing very well in all competitions. It’s been another spectacular season, under the command of Rúben Amorim and the entire structure. In the championship, they are in first place with the same points as FC Porto and have qualified for the Round of 16 of the Champions League. He is in the ‘final four’ of the League Cup and in the quarter finals of the Portuguese Cup and, in my opinion, he doesn’t need to reinforce himself”, he says, in White ball.

A January market with “small adjustments” in the roster. That was how Sporting’s coach, Rúben Amorim, referred to the possibility of changes being made to the Leo group during this month.

Bragança on Newcastle’s radar

Daniel Bragança, 22-year-old midfielder Rúben Amorim has already used this season in 22 games, in four competitions, is being watched by Newcastle, from England.

An exit is possible and only if a sale materializes, Carlos Saleiro admits that Sporting has to strengthen itself, which does not necessarily imply spending a lot of money.

“If someone leaves, Sporting may have to sign, but it would have to be a player already identified with the Portuguese league and with the Portuguese reality. Or, someone from the training, as has happened throughout the season. These are the young players from training that has helped the squad to become stronger and it’s a policy that has been successful. It’s a job that has been very well done, having a shorter squad to call on young players, when necessary,” he adds.

exhausting phase is approaching

With Sporting on all fronts and already in January with decisions in the Portuguese Cup and League Cup, Rúben Amorim will have to make a judicious management of the players, considers Saleiro.

“Even without European competitions in January, it will be a very exhausting month. Sporting is in the final four of the League Cup and wants to reach the final of the Portuguese Cup. Rúben Amorim will certainly use the best players in these competitions, but there will also be , a squad management because it is an important phase of the season. The coach will continue to do an excellent management because Sporting is on all fronts to win”, he concludes.

In this difficult cycle that is approaching, the first opponent is Santa Clara, in the next Friday, match of the 17th round of the I League.
